"The deal includes McGregor's new whiskey, Proper Whiskey, as a sponsor in every UFC event in which McGregor fights." That's wild.

They clarified it was actually 6 fights. Glad he's back, the dude knows how to sell fights.

 

Hoping he smashes Khabib in their fight, but no one really knows what Khabib will do in a fight against someone good since he really hasnt fought anyone. Khabib called Conor a chicken during the press conference and I loved how Connor turned it back on him asking why he stayed on the bus like a little b****h. Conor is money on the mic.

Khabib has no hands. Obviously he has to get in close with the clinch and take Conor down. Conor works best in distance but he throws kicks. If he makes Khabib stationary with leg kicks he wins. If Khabib gets it to the ground he wins. It’s funny how simplistic yet intriguing this matchup is.

Couldnt agree more. Cant deny Khabib's wrestling, hes not exceptionally good at anything else but once he gets people down hes good about laying on them and keeping them there. Having someone on top of you for 1-5 rounds will wear anyone down..

I’m going

Herrig
Volkov
OSP
Ferguson
Khabib

I could easily be 0-5 or 5-0. Very evenly matched main card.

Definitely solid picks. I might go Reyes over OSP but otherwise agree. Very evenly matched. Agreed

Yeah, I usually pick against OSP and he proves me wrong. Going the other route tonight. I’d like to see Waterson win but I think Herrig is “tougher” but less skilled. And Lewis has crazy KO power. I actually think Lewis wins if early finish which I think is probable, but if Volkov can weather the storm his endurance should be the difference.

Usually I feel I have the fights figured out, but these are tough.
